work at the former baitshop is finally getting under way. Rough plumbing is being installed for the two new handicap accessible bathrooms and some new waterlines. The old parking lot is going to be ripped up today and the front corner of the building will be busted out on wednesday to make way for the new entryway. Gina and I spent 10 hours on saturday and 10 hours on sunday stripping paint from the interior brick and it looks like we have at least 10 more hours to go. The sections that we have completed are coming out quite nice after they are stripped of the 5-10 coats of paint applied over the past 80 years. Once the stripping is complete we will apply some sort of masonary sealer to give them a bit of a sheen. The old roof will be stripped off next week and a new white roof will be applied shortly thereafter.
